Midfielder backs colleague

Dundee United midfielder Paul Paton insists departed colleague Chris Erskine can still win over the faithful at Tannadice.

The 26-year-old made a shock loan return to former club Partick Thistle last week after struggling to establish himself since arriving on Tayside over the summer.

"I'm disappointed that Chris has gone back to Partick," Paton admitted to the Dundee Courier. "The fans love him there and they'll know what to expect. There's no pressure on him.

"I think here the fans haven't really taken to him so far. He came here to make an impact but it obviously hasn't worked out as expected," he added. "I think it's just a confidence thing and the best is still to come from him."
